and better for the small business. tell me how you find the environment right now for the small business owner and what should the government do now to facilitate more bottom line growth for those businesses? >> i think the government has to look at what is the most direct and em pactful way it support small and midsize businesses. when i look at these businesses, there are some businesses when they are so small that they are no longer viable because of the market environment. those are not the ones we are referring to. we need poor management or otherwise poor credit. we are looking at businesses who may be rely on access to capital as one component of just the ongoing operation of their business. so in answer to your question, the environment is one that still consists of, i guess, limited available liquidity and limited available credit rather for small businesses, often reflected when you look at national federation of independent business surveys. they always tend to be a lot less optimistic an those of the larger companies. >> chris, among the many boards you're on, biggest company

it is less costly and in the environment with political instability, organized crime and then talks a lot about the focus of the national community much beyond the institutional capacity building and strengthening the cooperation. in mali the risks -- i hear a lot of talk and, the problem is not just you cannot just rely on the self-proclaimed representatives of all of the groups in northern mali. they are a minority. so one component among many. so any inclusive political solution should include but also other ethnic groups whether it be me the majority obviously or other ethnic actors. it has to be all inclusive. number two, there is the risk that we try to put nicely. it's exactly what others are waiting for them. they are just waiting to strike, for the opportunity which, and there are risks, right? we know based on the behavior of the forces especially with white skinned arabs. we know the african forces in which report they are by themselves these are one of the most feared for years and who they rely very heavily on them which is good because its, you know, it is the same climate s
'm not in a position in this environment in a classified environment i can get more specific. >> jennifer: and the lack of specificity has alarmed some on the left. including democratic senator ron wyden. >> the bottom line is the administration is essentially telling the congress the american people, just trust us and i just don't think that's the standard for oversight. >> jennifer: and that is just a prelude to tomorrow's confirmation hearings for john brennan who is a chief architect for the drone program. senator wyden has been one of john brennan's loudest opponents because of his role in that drone program. and here is another thing that is not going to help the president with the left, is he is now getting praise from the far right. lindsay graham said he was going to author a resolution commending the president's use of drones . . . maybe not the endorsement the president was looking for. so is his liberal appeal strong enough to withstand the outcry over the drones or is it just a narrow group of people? how should progressives feel about drone strikes any
whyhy away from rapidly growing companies in this environment? >> well, i think what you're seeing is a slow-down in earnings growth. but on the other hand, the economy is doing somewhat better than it was, let's say six months ago. so investors who come into the year looking for very fast earnings growth as justification for their stock prices may be somewhat disappointed. so the economy is getting a little bit better, but wave come out of the recession. we've had a full recovery in profits, so here, going forward, we pect to see slower growth and cnsisncy, think, is the key in that kind of environment. >> tom: you mentioned a full recovery in profits. are stocks, broadly speaking, at this level expensive given the lack of earnings growth that you forecast? >> i don't think they're either expensive or cheap. and the reason i say that is because the standard & poors 500, which is a proxy for the stock market, has about $100 of earnings expected underneath it and it trades at $1500. with the stock market trading at 15 times underlying eaings, that's aut a normal valuation for the ma

as we go through the rest of the year. i mean, we're still in the slow growth environment. we're still deleveraging. we're still dealing with fiscal austerity. i don't think the markets are fully taking that into account right now and investors have to be aware of that. >> so what exactly are you -- would you be telling clients right here? let's say they have been, like a lot of people, heavily into these irisk off bond portfolios. would you keep them there? >> we've been saying the same thing for quite some time right now. the environment we've been in is not one for somebody that's hunkered down, defensive, holding cash in treasuries. you're almost guaranteed to underperforming inflation investing in those things over the last five to ten years. even the shorter term period, you may see bigger puts. equities have a lot of risk to them. what we've been doing is positioning people in the middle of the risk sector. that means lower risk, stable, dividend paying equities, taking risk in your fixed income with high yield bank loans and using unique investment options like secured options
